Meeting for Worship, 10 to 11 am
Worship begins as soon as the first person is seated in our circle. Spiritual Development First Half Hour attenders and their teachers quietly join the meeting at an appointed time (see below). At the rise of meeting there are refreshments for all.
Spiritual Development First Half Hour: 10:00 to 10:30 am
This intergenerational group for youth is offered from September through June, and explores topics of spiritual development. They join our Meeting for Worship for the second half hour. Adults (and sometimes older youth) take turns leading First Half Hour.
Childcare: 9:45 to 1 pm
Childcare for babies and toddlers is available in the gym during Meeting for Worship. These children are generally brought into Meeting for Worship at 10:45.
After Meeting for Worship:
First Sunday: Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business — 11:30 to 1 pm
Our meeting for business is conducted in a manner similar to our worship. We listen carefully for God’s guidance — with mutual care and regard for one another’s wisdom. Ultimately, Quaker decision-making is Spirit-led, for together we seek unity with God’s will for the meeting. The co-clerks are the appointed servant leaders of our meeting.
Second Sunday: Quaker Cornerstones — 11:15 to 11:30 am
Second Sunday: Potluck — 11:30 to 12:30 pm
A monthly potluck under the care of the Worship and Ministry Committee. You are invited to share a meal with us and join in conversation and fellowship.
Third Sunday: Spiritual Growth — 11:30 to 1 pm
We join together to learn about Quaker history, spirituality, practices, and other subjects that build the life of our community.
Fourth Sunday: Women’s Group — 11:30 to 1 pm
Description here: Women’s Group 2019
Fifth Sunday: Extended Worship — 9:00 am
Whenever a fifth Sunday falls in our monthly calendar, we begin worship voluntarily at 9 am for a time of “extended worship”. Some Friends choose to begin worship at 9 am, and stay in worship until 11 am. Others arrive and join us quietly at the 10 am time.
Upcoming Ministry and Worship meetings:
These evening weekday meetings are at 7:30 pm, in various homes. If a meeting is on a Sunday, it is after worship. Ministry and worship is a committee “of the whole” and open to all. Locations will be announced after meeting, on our meeting google group, or ask a clerk!
